Very. Nice

Looks good. Im considering the same wheels for my blue conv with sport suspension. I plan to stay with 18s though. Don't want to change ride quality and my michelins have a lot of wear left. I wonder if I will be happy with the upgrade though. Almost everyone doing upgrades on this forum seem to be going with 19s. Has anyone seen pics posted with this wheel in 18s?

Did you lower yours? I recently got an XI coupe (328) and trying to decide between 18's vs 19's. Also, What's your set-up?

I think it's titanium silver and I got the wheels from **********s for $1200 shipped and the tires from discount tire for around $1400 and they swapped out my tire sensors and put them in my new wheels.

I just changed to Michelin PSS too. The ride is amazing and I agree with you about the Potenza's.

Everything checks out, 4 adults weighing 150lbs+ and 0 rubbing whatsoever on bumps, full radius turn, etc. Pretty satisfied

I can say the exact same thing to your car, oh wait, you have no pictures of it.

No pictures = you never bought it

People don't have a sense of humor now a days.

Oh right because even if I had pics up that really wouldn't prove it was mine and that I actually bought it either...oh and i'm sure I need to also take pics of all of the aftermarket parts I have or I'm lying about those as well and I need to scan pics of the receipts for them all too...

I guess then that 328 you have pics of might not be yours since I can't verify they are your pics and of your car and that your name is on the title.

I think if I was going to lie about having a car on a forum I would've picked something a little more "exotic" than a 335..

grow up kid

No point to your rant because no pictures = you never bought it

By the way a kid like you can always dream and make up their dream car online.

I think they look fantastic. I've heard nothing but superlatives about the PSS tires.

Why is that? So PSS's wouldn't fit on these Morr wheels?

Is it because certain tires only fit certain wheels? Any details would be appreciated as I'm going to look into new tires soon. Thanks!

sorry for bringing back an old thread but I have a question for the OP.

it looks like your car is a TIAG, would you be able to tell me what color your m359's are? from the picture my guess is hypersilver?

Yup, Hypersilver. So far so good in terms of quality, I've run over 2 pretty bad (unavoidable) potholes over the life of the wheels and as of yet, they have not been damaged by them*knock-on-wood*. And for all the people saying how "common" they are, I have yet to see a set in Houston, Tx. But to each his own.

Wheels / Tires

Hello, Car is looking good ! I really like the wheel/tire combo, sizes and offsets. Do you have higher rez/ better pictures ?

Thanks

At first I was a little torn between the attractive pricing of the V12 Hankook's and the PSS's handling and boy am I glad I chose the latter and went with the PSS's. Excellent cornering, superior ride comfort, little to no road noise. Almost like a new car. Here are some pictures I just took with my iPhone camera, also car is a little dirty. But what do yall think? Btw I'm running 19x9 +35 & 235/35/19 in the front and 19x10 +38 265/30/19 in the rear, 0 rubbing, didn't fold or modify anything to accommodate them.

OP: it may be the bad quality photos, but for some reason the color of the wheels (hypersilver) + TIAG seem to be boring and plain... (No pun intended)

Do you happen to have better photos with better focus on the wheels and preferably true to it's HYPERSILVER color?

Reason why i'm asking is because i also own a TIAG e92...and my wheels choices are narrowed down to either AG M359 or LC 818....but I still cannot decide what color I want for the wheels. THanks in advance!
